Tobin Bell Signs on for 'Saw X'
Saw X is in pre-production and let's face it, it wouldn't be Saw without Jigsaw. So, it should come as no surprise to anyone when they learn that actor Tobin Bell has signed on the dotted line, and will be back as John Kramer a.k.a Jigsaw, for the tenth film in the franchise from Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures.
“What a thrill to be reuniting with Tobin. His performance as John Kramer is part of the magic that made this franchise a phenomenon and his character is an active part of this film,” says Saw X producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules, both excited to have Tobin Bell back in familiar shoes. For those paying attention last year back in December, Saw X writer Josh Stolberg told his Twitter followers that the new script would, "make John Kramer fans very happy!!!"
Reduced to flashbacks since his death in the third film, and a photo in 2021's Spiral, Tobin Bell's Jigsaw continues to remain pivotal in the franchise, the late engineer of death having spawned numerous protégés throughout the saga's nine film run. No details have been confirmed yet if Jigsaw will be returning as flashbacks, or if Saw X is going to be set before John Kramer's death in Saw III. Either way, be on the look out next year for the release of Saw X on October 27, 2023.
